Paper Abstract

After having completed the phase B (front-end design) of the several subsystems, the E-ELT project is entering into the construction phase. The subsystems specifications, interface control documents and accompanying technical documentation resulting from the said design activities are being drafted along with the statements of work needed for the tendering processes. This paper presents an overview of the Systems Engineering Plan for the construction phase focusing on the specific systems engineering processes. The goal is to ensure that this phase is developed following an efficient systems engineering approach based on the lessons learned during phase B. The ultimate objective is that the E-ELT meets the science requirements defined by the users while the risk of overruns in cost or schedule, which might otherwise originate from the lack of a system perspective, is minimized.
